Letters Column: Ms. Prints

Carol Danvers remains in Boston visiting her parents, and one rainy night saves her father Joe from falling girders at a downtown high-rise construction site where heís one of the foremen. Maxwell Plumm, the owner/contractor, is cutting corners and using substandard building materials to save enough money to pay back a debt he owes to organized crime boss Dominic Varone. Carol realizes that her fatherís integrity could cost him his life if he makes trouble for Plumm.

That same night, Tracy Burke and Frank Gianelli are working late in the Woman magazine offices when Gianelli surprises a burglar in Carolís office and recognizes him as Ballard, the same man who torched Carolís apartment. Ballard flees.

Later, Carol has a seventh-sense vision of a known villain called Steeplejack carjacking her father and killing him on the fortieth floor of the unfinished building. Recovering, she arrives just in time to stop Steeplejack from shooting Joe Danvers. She grabs him off the ledge and knocks him unconscious when he proves argumentative and insistent on fighting Steeplejack himself. Hiding her fatherís body, Ms. Marvel puzzles over Steeplejack, a villain reported killed months earlier. Fighting him, she comes to suspect that itís Maxwell Plumm himself in the costume. She saves both her father and Plumm just as the entire Monarch Plaza collapses.

Ms. Marvel delivers Plumm into police custody as crowds gather, including Carolís mother. She reveals that she can see right through Ms. Marvelís disguise and would recognize her firstborn anywhere. Carol remains disappointed that her chauvinist father is unable to accept her, but decides itís not as important as she once thought.
